Norton Rose Fulbright LLP Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: Consider hiring more secretaries and paralegals. The firm would run so much smoother with just a few more of each.

Pros: This firm really seems to care about the employees. They host a ton of fun events and gatherings, and are incredibly flexible when it comes to time off for family related matters.

Cons: There doesn't seem to be enough support staff to keep things running efficiently. Secretaries are always behind and paralegals are sometimes nowhere to be found.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Working for the Norton Rose Fulbright LLP


Fulbright & Jaworski's stellar reputation in the field of law and its proven legal excellence makes for an exciting platform for continued growth in the field of law. The firm strongly believes that a law firm that stimulates and supports its employees' growth demands a workplace environment that has the informal and flexible atmosphere of a small firm along with the client base and the resources of a large practice of law, and hence, strives hard to achieve this balance in all its offices across the globe. Consequently, at Fulbright & Jaworski, office politics are set aside in favor of an open, accessible structure, and professionals are encouraged to interact with one another irrespective of their areas of specialization in an effort to share the acquired knowledge and develop more well-rounded attorneys.
